* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Seishirou is: the Sakurazukamori, the man Subaru met nine years ago, a [[TheSociopath murderous sociopath]], and Hokuto's killer.]] The first two [[TheUntwist aren't much of a twist]], but the last two make for one hell of a WhamEpisode.

to:

* IdiotPlot: Any reader unwilling to enter CLAMP's game of relationships can realize how improbable is the situation of two people living with someone they ''know'' to be their nemesis and doing nothing about it because one doesn't want to believe it and other wants them to hook up. It's only due to a bizarre personal bet by said enemy's part that the manga doesn't end in its first volume with two new Sakurazukamori kills.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The manga drops more than a few anvils directed at Japan (at the time the manga was written) specifically, relating to how Japanese society handles bullying, the mentally ill, rape victims, older people, and immigrants. They don't really propose solutions all of the time, but the idea is put out there.

* CryForTheDevil: Most of the "bad" people Subaru encounters are just normal people that were very, very broken to the point of lashing out, and the main lesson Tokyo Babylon teaches is that nobody should judge people's suffering but instead trying to understand them and thier reasons. The "Start" annex provides the quintessential quote.

* DracoInLeatherPants: Many fanfics downplay [[spoiler:Seishirou]]'s flaws and turn him into a possesive yet loving BastardBoyfriend, instead of a downright possesive, evil normal bastard.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The manga was aimed at teenagers in Japan but its themes are surprisingly dark. Before the end, the authors received lots of letters asking for a happy ending but this did not change the writers' plan.
